Cyborg's Origin Story In JUSTICE LEAGUE Is Significantly Different To The Comic Books

Jason Momoa recently spilled the beans on how Aquaman's origin story in Justice League differs to the source material and it's now been revealed that big changes are being made to Cyborg's background too.

There are two different origins for Cyborg in the DC Universe. The first is from the pre-Flashpoint timeline where Victor Stone is experimented on by his parents, employees of S.T.A.R. Labs who inadvertently bring an alien creature into our world that leads to Victor being mortally wounded and his mother dying. It's then that he's transformed into Cyborg and ends up joining the Teen Titans. 

In the post-Flashpoint universe, it's an explosion caused by a Father Box which does the damage and his father is forced to use alien technology to rescue his son who later joins the Justice League. 

In the DC Films Universe, though, things are going to be different. A new official description for the hero reveals that it's a car crash which leaves this version of Victor mortally wounded and in need of saving by his father and a Mother Box. "Part man, part machine, Victor Stone is a former star athlete at Gotham City University," it reads. "After a horrific car accident nearly cost his life, he was saved when his father, scientist Silas Stone, used an Apokoliptian Mother Box to reconstruct his body."
 
"In the process, Silas turned Victor into a human computer, organic with biomechatronic body parts. In other words, a cyborg," it concludes. That's a big change but not one which points to Zack Snyder/Joss Whedon not respecting the character's comic book roots. Does this change in Justice League upset you? As always, be sure to let us know your thoughts on this news in the usual place.
